Can you see leaking hydraulic fluid anywhere? The principle is very simple The master cylinder behaves like a syringe. You press the clutch pedal and fluid is forced by the master cylinder plunger to the slave cylinder mounted on the side of the gear box. The slave cylinder is like a syringe in reverse so that the fluid pushed into it from the master cylinder causes the plunger to extend into the clutch/flywheel bell housing and engage with the end of the clutch bearing release lever. The slave cylinder has a bleed screw on the top of it to release any air that has got into the system. Ensure that reservoir is full and ensure that a sheet of polythene has not been left under the screwed on cap: sometimes done to prevent excessive fluid loss whilst working on hydraulic systems. Make sure that the hydraulic unions at the master and slave cylinders are nice and tight. make sure all bled points are similarly tight. The only possible remaining places for air ingress (and by default fluid egress) are the cylinder fluid seals on the pistons... get under and look for leaks when you can get a colleague to pump the clutch repeatedly

It is not adjustable as it is Hydrolic. it self adjusts.

If you just installed a master cylinder for it, the shaft does have a minor adjustment on it.

Most likely what is happening is one of two........

1. The clutch is worn out and the pedal is getting VERY LOW.

2. The clutch is new and you have air in the system............. These things are a nightmare to bleed out. slowly pump the pedal while someone uses a prybar to disengage the clutch to allow full travel of the slave cylender. While they hold the pedal release the pry bar and open the bleeder, repeat twice more, then fill the master cylender again, continue until all air is out!

the hydrolic cylender might be out of brake fluid. by the master cylender you should have a small jug that should have brake fluid. if empty you got a leak. if full you will need a new clutch.

Well, it sounds like the clutch cylinder / clutch linkage is not properly adjusted or the clutch cylinder is not fully bled, or it is malfunctioning -- it's not fully depressing the pressure plate when the pedal is pushed down, therefore, the clutch is still engaged.

I was told the clutch on my 2003 mazda protege is hydrolic....how do I go about adjusting it


The whole idea behind the Hydralic Clutch is there is no adjustment.If the clutch is slipping then you need a new one.If you are having trouble getting it into gear then you may have a bad clutch master and or slave cylinder.Let me know if i can help.
